Stellenbosch FC have snapped up former Witbank Spurs and Baroka FC striker, Cleopas Dube, after a successful trial.
The 26-year-old, who netted 13 league goals last season - mainly as a substitute for Siyavutha - has already illustrated what he’s made of.
“Cleopas is looking sharp at training,” said a source who confirmed the news.
“Being a big guy, he’s been giving the goalkeepers and defenders a hard time. With this good work ethic, he obviously knows how to put his hand up in order to ask for a starting position, while off the field the striker’s also a nice person.”
It’s believed that Dube’s paperwork is now in order and that he could be ready for his club’s next fixture on Sunday away to Royal Eagles.
“Cleopas came for one week then went home to Zimbabwe so his work permit shouldn’t be an issue,” the source concluded.
The club has also signed another Zimbabwean in goalkeeper Washington Arubi, who was previously on the books of University of Pretoria.
“He’s our fourth ‘keeper,” said an insider.
